TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Two University of Alabama football
players are free on bond today following their arrests on
misdemeanor charges related to an altercation at a bar.
   Jail records show 19-year-old defensive lineman Brandon Deadrick
was released on $1,500 bond. And 22-year-old running back Roy
Upchurch is free on $300 bond.
   A report by the Tuscaloosa Police Department says Deadrick was
charged with criminal mischief, resisting arrest and giving a false
name. Officers say Upchurch was arrested by university police.
   A Tuscaloosa police spokesman says no fights or injuries were
reported. The incident occurred early Saturday in front of The
Legacy. That's a bar along the strip, an area of nightclubs,
restaurants and stores popular with students.
   University spokeswoman Deborah Lane says both players are
enrolled in summer school.
   Athletics spokesman Doug Walker says coach Nick Saban was told
of the arrests, and team officials are still gathering information.
